Salvia "Velocity Blue"

We’ve Got the Blues – Salvia 'Velocity Blue’

Looking for a low-maintenance perennial for a practically nonstop flower show from summer through fall? Salvia 'Velocity Blue' is a full-proof way to add beautiful, bold, blue tones to your garden throughout spring and summer. This early bloomer adds an element of structure and height to plantings with its bushy, upright habit and unusually large flowers. Best of all, it has excellent heat tolerance for those hot, humid days of summer. This salvia mixes well in a perennial garden and in mixed containers infusing color all summer long. Thrives in full-sun and in moist, well-drained soil and is a magnet for attracting butterflies, bees and hummingbirds to your garden.
